State Early Action Projects • ENGINEERING AND DESIGN • Violet Diversion • Freshwater Bayou Bank Stabilization • Mississippi River Sediment Delivery Pipeline • Bayou Lamoque Diversion • Orleans Land Bridge Shoreline Protection • Blind River Freshwater Siphon • CONSTRUCTION • East Grand Terre Island • Barataria Land Bridge Dedicated Dredging • Grand Lake Shoreline Protection • Beneficial Use of Dredged Material • GIWW Bank Restoration -Terrebonne Parish • Rockefeller Shoreline Demo • Lake Salvador, Phase III Coastal Forest Conservation Initiative (Acquisition)

  4. Surplus-Funded Restoration Projects • Biloxi Marsh ($22M) • Caminada Headlands OR HNC Complex ($40M) • Marsh Creation near Freshwater Bayou ($4M) • Cameron Parish Shoreline ($31M) • Beneficial Use – Calcasieu Ship Channel ($5M) • Pipeline Conveyance in Plaquemines Parish ($22M)

  5. State Restoration Projects • 44 projects completed: $49.71M • Dedicated Dredging Program: 2 currently under construction, Grand Bayou Blue ($1.8M) and the Point Au Fer ($2.5M) project • Mississippi River Reintroduction Into Bayou Lafourche (BA-25b): currently in design ($184M) • Barrier Island Maintenance Program (BIMP): Engineering and design has been initiated on the first project funded through BIMP, the Bay Champagne Marsh Creation project ($3.5M)

  9. SCIENCE • LCA S&T Program: • Support the science and technology necessary to effectively address coastal ecosystem restoration needs and provide analytical tools, programmatic and project-specific reviews, and recommendations for studies to investigate scientific and technological uncertainties • FY 06: $7M; FY 07: $5M • Coastwide Reference Monitoring System- Wetlands (CRMS-Wetlands): • To date, 371 sites have been visited and characterized and approximately 176 sites are fully operational and collecting all data parameters • $20.3M in funding authorized through FY 2010 • Barrier Island Comprehensive Monitoring (BICM): • Completed Coastal post-storm assessment video and photography • Complete Coast-wide Shoreline Erosion Rates for Historic, Long-term, Short-term, and Near-term Time Periods (1880’s, 1920’s, 1980’s, 2004, 2005) • Completed Bathymetric Surveys for sandy shorelines (Sabine to Mermentau, Raccoon Island to Sandy Point, and Chandeleur Islands) • Completed LiDAR Surveys for sandy shorelines • $0.5M yearly

  10. Coastal Use Permit Streamlining Processing time for all permits reduced by 51% (59.9 days to 30.6 days) between 2002 and 2006.
